Grateful for a Quick Healing   Leave a comment

The members of the Christian Science community in Canberra share their healings and thoughts on Christian Science:

A few weeks ago I went to the movies in the afternoon with my daughter and her friend.

As the movie started, I began to feel unwell. I tried to pray but, found it difficult to shut out the noise and images from the movie and felt worse as the movie progressed.

At the end, I left the cinema as quickly as I could and found a place to throw up.

My daughter and her friend didn’t know anything about this and drove to my place to join my other daughter and her family for an evening meal with us.

When I arrived home, I told everyone I wasn’t feeling well enough to eat and went and lay down. I took some Christian Science Journals and the textbook of Christian Science, Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  I started reading the March Journal and came across an article by Mary Beattie: “Truth Communicates Itself”.  I became absorbed reading this and other articles and suddenly realised about an hour later that I was hungry. I was totally healed.  I am very grateful for what I am learning in Christian Science.

Comments from a Reader   1 comment

A couple of weeks ago I was looking at this Canberra blog site and found a list of testimonies.  The first one caught my attention because it featured chooks and I love chooks.  The testifier told of gathering eggs from her chook run and then stepping on to a rusty nail amidst the chook manure.  She became quite fearful having heard of the claims of tetanus.  She then explained how she came to a healing conclusion as a result of her life-long study of Christian Science

A couple of days later I was walking around the house in socks and I felt a sharp pain in my foot.  There was a rusty needle embedded in it. My thoughts went on fast forward.  Then I thought, “what about that testimony you read?’  I read it again and gradually the fear began to subside but lingered a little.

The next day I joined a Zoom testimony meeting at the Christian Science church in Redcliffe, Queensland.  A lady told of pruning roses and of a thorn becoming embedded in her arm.  It looked quite ominous but she prayed diligently and after a few days all was well.  After listening to that testimony all fear completely vanished.


The next day my cat came home with a battered face and there were puncture wounds.  He had obviously been in a fight.  I couldn’t take him to the vet as I didn’t  have use of a car.  I got some water and cotton wool and he pushed me away as if to say, “You’re not washing my face!”   I said to him this has all been proven, well and truly – by the testifiers in Canberra and in Redcliffe and my own experience and you are not the exception to the rule. The next morning he went out and was gone all day and didn’t come back till after dark.  It was apparent that the healing was going forward quickly and in no time there was no evidence of the wound.

Thanks to your church for putting the testimonies on your web site.  Thanks to the testifiers from your church and Redcliffe and for my own healing.  And thanks to  Gussy for being proof that “All of God’s creatures moving in the harmony of Science are harmless, useful, indestructible.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p514)

Miracles – Divine Law in Action   Leave a comment

Wednesday Testimony Meeting readings

This recording is of the readings on the topic: Miracles – Divine Law in Action

The Sea of Galilee at sunrise.

.

The miracle introduces no disorder, but unfolds the primal order, establishing the Science of God’s unchanging law.

There is to-day danger of repeating the offence of the Jews by limiting the Holy One of Israel and asking: “Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?” What cannot God do?

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p134)

Humility – The Cure for Pride   Leave a comment

I had to learn humility the hard way! I was ice-skating with my granddaughter one evening. I am not a very good skater and I was doing my best to keep up speed and glide. At one point I noticed that the rink was populated with young people, and a little pride crept in that I was out there even though I am a grandmother.

Well, a few more turns around the rink and then down I went. My wrist was badly hurt.

My go-to in times of need has always been prayer. In this case, a wake-up call about pride was my biggest take-away from my prayers. After about two weeks, I could still not move my wrist. Then, one day in humble prayer, it came to me that all of us out there on the ice were children of God, expressing the joy, strength, and energy of divine Life. Our true nature is not defined by a certain age and personal abilities. Instead, it appears in our reflection of God’s qualities.

I was very humbled by this thought. In his book “Mere Christianity,” C. S. Lewis, the Christian apologist, refers to pride as “the complete anti-God state of mind.” It suggests the possibility of a selfhood or ego apart from God, the one true Ego. It is a way of thinking that denies the onliness and allness of infinite good.

COVID Overcome   Leave a comment

The members of the Christian Science community in Canberra share their experiences and thoughts on Christian Science:

Recently, a close relative phoned from a hotel room in London, very distressed that he hadn’t been allowed to board his flight home because he’d tested positive to COVID. He was told he wouldn’t be allowed to fly until he tested negative, so he was uncertain about how long this might take.

A few months ago he’d contracted COVID in Portugal and had a difficult time, with many delays and much bureaucratic red tape before getting cleared to fly home. I think this had remained with him and he felt as if he was going through the same nightmare again.

He told me he was feeling very alone and miserable and sobbed into the phone “I just want to go home”. I immediately thought “you are already at home”, you can’t be separated from your Father Mother God, divine Love.

We talked about these ideas and that week’s Bible Lesson on Reality that said anything inharmonious or discordant is not real – it is just an illusion or dream which we can wake up from. When we hung up the thought came to me to look at Hymn 144 (from the Christian Science Hymnal) which begins –

In atmosphere of Love divine,

We live, and move, and breathe;

Though mortal eyes may see it not,

‘Tis sense that would deceive.

.

Then a couple of pages later is Hymn 148 which says:

In heavenly Love abiding,

No change my heart shall fear;

And safe is such confiding,

For nothing changes here.

The storm may roar without me,

My heart may low be laid;

But God is round about me,

And can I be dismayed?

I sent him a text message suggesting he look at these hymns for comfort. It was Sunday morning in London and he was about to go to Church.

The next day (Monday) when I phoned, he was much calmer, and in a queue, to get a COVID test. He said he had been praying with ideas from that week’s lesson and felt confident it would be negative and had booked to fly home on the Wednesday evening. On Wednesday morning he phoned to say the test had returned negative and he was cleared to fly. He has since contacted me to let me know he is safely home. He gives full credit to Christian Science for this healing.

A few hours before that first phone call from London, I’d received an email from a friend who I’d recently had lunch with telling me he’d tested positive for COVID. I became really worried because I had child minding duties the next day and catch ups organised with friends over the next few days and had been feeling a bit off colour since flying back from Brisbane a week earlier. With all these thoughts and emotions swirling around I was struggling to pray and calm my fear. So, the phone call from my relative came at exactly the right time. I was quickly lifted out of feeling sorry and fearful for myself and into the realm where all is perfect and harmonious. I knew I was okay, but did a couple of COVID tests to calm the fears of those around me. Both returned negative.

I’m very grateful to Christian Science for these, and all the other healings I’ve had.
